Stevenson/Clark/Geddis/Robson - (Ballyblack - County Down)
Looking for descendents of James b.mid 1800s & Agnes(nee Geddis b.mid1800s) Stevenson of Ballyblack, they had several children, Charlotte, Agnes, Hamilton, Robert, Isabella & Elizabeth that I know of. Agnes Geddis' parents were Hamilton & Isabella (nee Robson). Hamilton Stevenson married Mary Clark, her parents were Michael (known as David)b.1871 in Greenock, Scotland & Agnes (nee Stuart) Clark(e), Michael's father war David Clark(e).
Wonder if they are related to Samuel Stevenson ,Blacksmith ,who had issue marrying in Balllyblack.
